Spotted: NYC Fall 2014 Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection

Many thanks to reader DeWanna (@msluckydee13 on Instagram) for this one! DeWanna spotted the brand new NYC Fashsion Queen Collection at her local Kmart this week and was nice enough to share some pics and info with us.

NOTE: Kmart seems to be getting various limited edition collections from NYC, Wet n Wild and Rimmel ahead of other retailers lately, so if you have a Kmart in your area, it's definitely worth a trip! I would expect this new NYC collection to start popping up at other retailers like Rite Aid and CVS within the next few weeks.

NYC Fall 2014 Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection
(retail: $1.99 each for the polishes, $4.99 each for the eyeshadow palettes)

There are nine limited edition nail colors in this collection and two limited edition eyeshadow palettes. AND, there is a $1 off coupon tear-pad on this display (I love that NYC always puts those on their limited edition collections).

For a closer look at the eyeshadow palettes, CLICK HERE for a pic from reader @saraxkitty on Instagram.

There are six glitters in this collection (labelled as "Crystal Couture" polishes) and three regular (non-glitter) polishes.

A closer look at the Crystal Couture polishes:

NYC Limited Edition Crystal Couture Nail Colors
Blue Majesty, NY Princess, Fashion Queen, Ruby Queen, Queen's Jewels, Rule of the City

DeWanna originally thought that the Crystal Coutures might be textured. But then she swatched them and confirmed to me that they are NOT textured polishes, just heavily glittered.

The three regular (non-glitter) polishes:

As I was about to hit "publish" on this blog post, I received another pic of the display from Amy McG (@mcpolish on Instagram), who also just spotted this collection. I'm loving the look of these plum shadows:

Have you spotted the NYC Fall 2014 Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks so much, DeWanna, Sara and Amy McG, for the great pics and info. I really appreciate it!

  1. Any suggestions on where to find NYC polishes? I don't have K-Mart or Rite Aid, and the CVS's near me are the worst in cosmetic departments...never found the City Samba collection. This collection really looks awesome though, and I'd love to find it.

    1. I see from a look at your profile that you probably live near a Meijer, and they carry NYC stuff.

    2. We don't have Kmart or Rite Aid here in Houston either. I'm in the same boat with you girl. It stinks!!! All of the really gorgeous polishes that don't cost a fortune are always at these 2 stores!!

  2. I love the top coat from this line, but I only have one polish (a light melon from this summers LE collection) and was rather disappointed in it. Very streaky. I'm always looking for brown though so I might try another if I spot this display.. you don't find many browns. The burgundy and gold are gorgeous as well.

  3. Looked in Kmart, rite aid and CVS... no luck yet. Will keep an eye out. I want all the polishes.. and I will get them!

    1. And I hope Rite Aid gets them since they have NYC on sale this week at BOGO 50% (which means 25% OFF 2). I want these so bad I can taste it. Damn it, I want them now!

      Yes, I will be the first to stand up at NPA to admit my addiction. I'll bring the donuts... that's me, nail polish anonymous member #1, Manicured and damn proud of it, chips and all. Hey, I ain't perfect.

    2. I'm right there with you, Glam Puss. If the first step is admitting you have a problem, then here I am: I am a nail polish addict!! I've got over 700 bottles of polish and counting....

    3. I just keep buying and buying nail polish, more and more. I almost feel like I have to hide it from friends and family. They just don't understand why I need it.

      There is no way I could use all the polish I have, but that doesn't stop me. My polish might MSRP for upwards of $10 (Sally Hansen CSM) and as low as $1 (WnW, NYC), but I will only pay $4 the most. Sales are my friends. I like my polish cheap.

      Nail polish and the hunt for them makes me happy. I like to be happy, so like nail polish. LOL

      My estimate is 500, it might be more. I stopped working on my swatch looseleaf binder with plastic sleeves, lined paper and tabs that I paint colors on... thanks mrsthedoll... someday I will get back to that.

      But in until then I'll just keep buying... now where is this darn display!

  4. And the NY Princess... So pretty! Don't know why I like the Queen's Jewels, since I can't do dark greens, but... Something about it is awesome! =)

  5. The CVS stores around me never had the City Samba collection, so I don't think I'll find this one, sadly. No Rite Aid or Kmart either.

  6. So I figure I have a 50/50 chance of spotting this collection because Kmart is the only retailer in my area who carries LE NYC collections and they got the spring one but not the summer one. Not going to get my hopes up at all. If I happen to find it though, all the better. These polishes look very pretty! Thanks for the pics. :D

    1. Hope your Kmart gets these polishes. They look really pretty. If you find them are you planning on getting all of them like me?

  7. i don't know why but whenever I click a link to anything on instagram, it never shows up. It's the same on several computers, too.

  8. I found this at KMart too. I picked up a couple of polishes. All the coupons were removed from the tear pad and that made me mad. I didn't have time to hunt someone down to see if they were hidden away in the jewelry department. Ugh! I don't like the idea of buying fall yet but I did it because they will probably sell quickly and the display was still full!

    1. Bright side... you found the display and bought the ones you wanted.

      Bummer... no cpns. Sorry about that.

  9. I just spotted this collection at the CVS in Boston near Downtown Crossing. The polishes didn't look too interesting with the exception of Rule The City. I picked that up and they had coupons right near the display for a $1 off.

  10. Finally! I found these at Kmart today. Only one nail polish was gone. All the polishes came home with me... after 9 $1 off cpns. My Kmart sells them for $2.19 originally. 20 cents more than most other stores. Oh well... at least I got my fix for the day, or just the hour at the rate I'm buying up nail polish.

    Happy girl here!
